FRANKLIN, Ind.  – A new sampling report released Wednesday says the Environmental Protection Agency likely missed more homes exposed to toxic vapors in Franklin.

The Edison Wetlands Association (EWA) says it happened because the EPA only used one testing method. 13 Investigates reports why mothers of sick children want widespread testing.

Around the clock monitoring using canisters and "real time" grab samples is now calling into question the potential extent of toxic contamination in homes in Franklin.

In a new 70-page report by Mundell and Associates, chemical "spikes" were detected in hundreds of samples from both sewers and homes. Spikes that the EWA believes could leave more residents than previously identified, at risk.
